Search Fiery Hill Cemetery:

This cemetery is located on the former Fiery Hill Farm, Danube, Herkimer Co., NY. It is noted as being in Danube, but that could just be the nearest town. It appears now that it is also called the Ostrander Cemetery, and that this is a case of a double entry of cemeteries.
The two need to be combined. The sign outside the cemetery called it the Ostrander Cemetery, so that name appears to be the better name for it, although some family members refer to it as the Fiery Hill Cemetery.

One Ostrander family member writes:

Is it possible for Fiery Hill Cemetery to be included in the Find A Grave list of Herkimer cemeteries, but linked to the Ostrander Cemetery? This was suggested. I think if this is not done there will be a perpetual problem of people adding the Fiery Hill Cemetery to Find A Grave. For example, the transcription at the Fonda courthouse calls it Fiery Hill with alternate name Danube Cemetery, and the Ostrander "Big Book" (931 pages!) uses Fiery Hill as the cemetery name. It is not uncommon for cemeteries to have AKA names, and it seems Find A Grave should have or find a way to incorporate this in their data base. Without such, there will always be problems.
